Alright Pit, I know you don't have a PhD or anything but I need some help.
Ever since my gf of 5 months broke up w/ me (a year from tomorrow), I've had insomnia. Progressively it has worsened and now I get only a few hours of sleep and i fall asleep around 4 or 5 in the morning. Tell the truth I don't think I've ever really come to terms with what happened. We are friends on and off. Each time, I break off the friendship because I feel it would finally make me feel "free" of her per se.
But everytime, I end up going back wanting to be friends again. I'm trying to fix everything and sent her a friend request. She accepted, but all attempts to communicate with her fail as she won't talk to me. (When i broke it off I told her to get out of my life)

Pit, do you have any advice as to how to come to terms with it all and stay friends with her as well as ending my insomnia?

Go pick up a new girl. Join a gym to build yourself up both mentally and physically. Thats what I try and do when ever a girl shoots me down.

Well there's ways to cure mild insomnia. Like drinking milk, not exercising or doing anything physical around the last 2-3 hours your awake.

Try Webmd for little things to do against it. I myself suffer from occasional insomnia.

Again I give you my thanks

That has happened to me twice.
I find it kinda harsh both times i asked why it was a simple "oh, i dont like you anymore, thats all."

ya man i hate how clueless she can be too
a month after we broke up, we went to a church camp ( i used to go every year, now i dont) but I played Nothing Else Matters for the talent show and afterwards I asked her how i did and shes like "I dont know I wasnt really paying attention"
WTF??!!

I guess part of my problem may be that as much as i love her i also hate her as well and I haven't expressed that to her

Sounds like a bitch to me, just forget about her and try looking for a new girl that seems to work for all the people I know. When a similar thing happened to me I refused to talk to the girl as a friend and started looking for a new girl and I got over it surprisingly fast.

Working out gives me a great rush. Afterwards I feel a great euphoria feeling as well as that, the workout helps me improve my body. Also it will tire me out! so sleeping is easier!
